MILITARY INTELLIGENCE SERVICE, WAR DEPARTMENT, WASHINGTON D. C. SPECIAL SERIES No. 34 Japanese Tank And Antitank Warfare, August 1, 1945
"The Japanese produced their first modern light tank in 1935. This vehicle, the Type 95 (1935), subsequently was standardized and manufactured in large numbers. With its improved suspension and hull, and its turret-mounting of a Type 94 (1934) 37-mm high-velocity gun, it represented a considerable advance in Japanese design, which prior to 1935 was preoccupied with the production of imitations of 4- to 15-ton tanks purchased from other countries. Yet, in common with all early Japanese tanks, the protective armor of the Type 95 was made extremely light, with a maximum thickness of only 0.5 inch. From 1935 to 1942, in addition to the Type 95 light tank, the Type 97 (1937) medium tank, in both the original and improved versions, and the Type 2 (1942) amphibious tank were also developed and produced in considerable numbers."
